Abstract: Designing spaces related to children are a relatively new concern among architects, urban planners and landscape architects. This trend is associated with requirements in the design. Sociology and psychology data emphasize on the importance of childish content production. However, relying on them is only sponsored the creation of the most basic requirements to shape the design for a children’s audience. Hence, it is necessary for the architect to consider the fundamental designing necessities for children (health care, development and physical development, learning, social involvement, etc.) and to look for sources of inspiration for designing. One way to achieve this goal is searching among the things that the child expresses such as childish game or studying what the child accepts and believes such as children’s literature. In this study, it has been tried to evaluate the first steps of the children’s literature capacity as a source for finding ideas in architectural design. Therefore, it has been attempted to find an answer to the main question, how can the children’s literature affect on the architectural spaces design in related to children? To find an answer to that question, at first it has been trying to introduce children and a brief introduction of the children’s content concept and what makes the literature as "childish". In the next steps, those children’s literature capacities which may be ideas to create childlike qualities in different types were introduced.
